Oh yeah. Go ahead. Rub it in, why don't ya?

 

;-)

 

Enjoy.

 

(how's the first level bass boost work with the UM3's, BTW?)

I tried the bass boost with the UM3s, but I thought it was too much bass. No boost was perfect to my ears.

I am admittedly a little late to the party here, but this amp is amazing. It makes my Grados sing.

I have been using it mostly with my Blox M2C, but have used it with my Grado 325is a few times, and you're right, it does do wonders with the Grado sound...

Robert is on top of the case. smily_headphones1.gif  I emailed him and got a prompt response. The amp I ordered on May 24th has made it's way from Hong Kong to a DHL hub that is some 14 miles away from me on Long Island. Entire delivery will have taken nine or ten business days. 

 

Edited: it officially took nine business days. Besides prompt delivery, Robert has promptly responded to followup emails. Delivery and response is only noteworthy in light of contrasting anecdotes elsewhere in this thread. redface.gif

This post probably isn't going to be relevant anymore since A. it's been discussed to death already and B. my Arrow 12HE 2G is two generations behind, but I can confirm that the 12HE 2G and the UE Triple.fi 10 do not pair well at all. Not sure what it is, but it tones down the treble response too much for my taste. Cymbals sound completely flat, and the separation isn't as good. It's strange though, the Arrow pairs very well with my Grados!

It has been discussed to death.  Output impedance was around 10ohms which screws up the TF10 crossover.  It's been fixed and below 1 ohm since 2.2/3G, can't recall which.  TF10 has the most susceptible crossover of any IEM to output impedance from any device.

So is an Arrow 3G worth the $140 extra over my newly purchased Fiio E11? I'll be using it with Etymotic ER-4B primarily, IE8, and Senns HD555. 

 

Can't decide if I should return the E11 and shell out the extra cash.

 

edit: too late, my impulses got the best of me.

Absolutely.

Received my Arrow 4G today, and although it’s very early in the evaluation process, first impressions are nothing but stunning. Beautifully built, and the sound, of my god, the sound… I have goose bumps all over at the moment.

 

Heartfelt gratitude to Robert for allowing me to have this AMP and for following me up and answering every stupid question I had in the process. Robert, you are a prince! Thanks

Hi,

 

I didn't see any answer to this question and I'm having the exact same problem. For clarification: the amp works while the mini usb cable is plugged in but not (or not well) when it's not plugged in. And no light comes on at all when i plug in the amp (usb to usb) but am not listening to music. I've had my amp for a few months and this is a new problem. I'm thinking it needs a new battery or do i need a replacement amp? (a workaround would be best...smile.gif)

What a sublime technological marvell.. the size.. the build and texture of the cover.. its so small and cute and the Sound! Oh my days...  Stunning product.

What we now need is a good holding case. Check out my pic

Anyone have experience with the Arrow 4G and Sennheiser HD650 (or similar headphones)? Will Arrow be capable of running them? Is it a good match?

 

Any input welcome!
